Hip, Hip Hoo-Red

Prior to the coronation of Barry the Red and the subsequent adornment of the White House Christmas tree with a Mao bauble, displays of affection for the heroes of Marxism were generally confined to the offices of upwardly mobile apparatchiks in Moscow, Peking and Havana, Teddy Kennedy’s back parlor in Hyannisport, and the inner chambers of the Democratic National Committee—the good old days, when the idolized likenesses of famous subversives appeared on dog-eared FBI watch lists and the dreary walls of local post offices instead of fronting the juror’s lounge in a federal courtroom in the nation’s capitol.  As the Washington Times reports:

Included among the posters, hung for Black History Month…is one in which the D.C. courts — the federally funded judicial branch of the D.C. government — honor eight “Black Women Paving the Way to Greatness in Politics.”

One of these personifications of “greatness,” however, comes as a shock, especially in the context of a court of law. It is none other than Angela Davis, a black activist who came to prominence in the 1960s as a leader of the Communist Party U.S.A. and the radical black group the Black Panther Party. Ms. Davis was such a high profile communist in the latter days of the Cold War that she was awarded the so-called “Lenin Peace Prize,” given to her in a Moscow ceremony by Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev himself.

Of course, Ms. Davis, too, was a trailblazer in her own way.

Court officials protested that their display included the infamous Angie because of her “contributions to the political debate.” Discover the Networks has compiled a number of the historic “contributions” this woman has made to civic deliberation in America over the years:

  • Communist professor at the University of California’s Santa Cruz campus
  • Recipient of the Lenin “Peace Prize” from the police state of East Germany in 1979
  • Provided an arsenal of weapons to Black Panthers who used them to kill a Marin County judge in a failed attempt to free Davis’ imprisoned lover, Black Panther murderer George Jackson
  • Icon of the campus Left and frequent guest speaker at anti-war rallies
  • Leader of a movement to free all criminals who are minorities claiming that they are political prisoners of the racist United States
  • “The only path of liberation for black people is that which leads toward complete and radical overthrow of the capitalist class.”

Due to public censure, the offending placard bearing Angela’s likeness has since been removed from the hollowed halls of the federal judiciary.  None of us should forget, however, one Davis truism that’s always acceptable in mixed company:

“What this country needs is more unemployed politicians.”

    Star Strangled Banner? From WFTV.com – Vets angry over American flag featuring Obama

    Tempers are flaring over a version of the American flag flying in Lake County. A veterans group says the flag is an outrage.

    The flag, which features a picture of President Obama, was taken down Tuesday afternoon.

    Korean war veteran Don Van Beck said his blood was boiling.

    “I can’t describe how upset was because you just don’t do that to the American flag,” Van Beck said.

    Van Beck found it flying outside Lake County Democratic headquarters under the stars and stripes. Marine Corps vet John Masterjohn was seeing red.

    “Joseph Stalin, pictures of Mao, pictures of Adolph Hitler. The pomp, the ceremony — the flags like that,” Masterjohn said.

    Nearly a dozen veterans went to the door and aimed to take it down.

    “No. This is private property. This is private property. You’re not allowed to touch anything. I’ll call the police,” Democratic Party chairwoman Nancy Hulbert said. “Just went online. Just went online and looked up the flag code. There is no higher-up in Lake County. I’m responsible. I take responsibility.”

    “If you’ve been a veteran and fought — and some died for this flag — you don’t want to see it desecrated. That’s how simple it is,” Van Beck said.

    And so it goes in Obama Nation…where nothing sacred is sacred except the allegiance to Marx (via his willing servant, Barack Obama).

  3. I’m sure that Angela Davis is one of Obama’s heroes. He is both a Marxist and a racist and if he gets four more years he will finish the destruction of the Republic.

    Sadly, I bet their are few of us that recall or care to recall Angela. A bit of Black History that should make it to the History books if, of course, given a true representation of the facts. I am sure feeling old these days. The old is spinning around and becoming new once again.

      But, like all the retread radicals, she’s still out there, tenured to corrupt the minds of the young at a “a six-figure salary and a research assistant. This income is supplemented by speaking fees ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 per appearance on college campuses…” (From Discover The Networks).

    It is amazing to me how brazen these Marxists have become. Angela Davis would be the role model for the current crop of black Marxists in Congress. Militant Marxists are all over our government like a plague….Holder being one of them as well. Bunker is right, too, though…they are capitalizing on collective amnesia and the youth who remain clueless.
    Good catch, Bob. The assault on our country continues.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Well, the media lets ‘em get away with it, CHERYL. After all, if they’d have publicized the Obama connections, he’d still be back screwing Illinois instead of the country at large.

      • Sherry says:

        Hey! My state is in as good of shape as California! If we’d woulda kept Obama we coulda got far ahead of that state! We coulda beat them to the bankruptcy punch by now. :mrgreen:
